You may have noticed a new graphic in my side bar. It links to a Facebook group of mental health bloggers. I have loved the support and caring I discovered with them. And the writing has been fantastic!
I asked the other members if they would share one of their own posts that they thought was the best of their work. I was so moved and touched by their bravery and openness. I hope you will take a few minutes to visit them.
*Bereaved and Blessed shared her Gatekeeper post on how we can make extraordinary differences in the lives around us with just a few words.
*Not Just About Wee makes the important distinction between PPD and Maternal Depression in My Lifelong Battle with Selma and Patty.
*The Good Mother Project bravely asked this question out loud: “Can A Bipolar Person Be A Good Mother?“.
*I so loved Come Unglued’s roar with I AM NOT WEAK.
*Motherhood Unadorned takes a beautiful stand on being more open about suicide in Suicide Should Not Be Hushed Up!
*You Should See My Scars poignant post could be a trigger for those who self-harm, but it celebrates an 11 day milestone in Comfort Hasn’t Failed To Follow So Far.
*In Let’s Talk, Bipolar Mom Life opens her heart and encourages everyone to reach out to each other when you are struggling.
*Cosleepwalking shares with her future self things she needs to remember as she deals with the ebb and flow of being bipolar in What Goes Up….
*Home Life Simplified wrote about trusting her instincts enough to know it was time to go back on meds in Filling In The Cracks.
*Last, but not least I shared one I thought was one of my best with I Don’t Hate You – The Face of Social Anxiety.
This is just a small sampling of the support that is out there. I hope these help.
